The “European Maritime Law Organisation” (EMLO) was established to provide a neutral and independent forum for debate and research on issues of interest to those concerned with EU maritime affairs.

We are an independent body and hold conferences and seminars on all aspects of EU maritime law, ranging from competition and trade to safety and the environment.

EMLO has been at the forefront of developments in EU maritime policy as that policy has evolved over the past two decades.  Founded in 1991 shortly after the first proceedings (against the Far Eastern Freight Conference) had commenced, EMLO had an inaugural conference in London in October of that year.  The keynote speech was delivered by Helmut Kreis.  That set the scene for subsequent Annual Conferences which have attracted leading speakers from the European Commission and engendered plenty of lively debate.

EMLO is THE place where the latest legal trends and developments in EU maritime competition law and general maritime law are reported, analysed and critically debated and is widely attended by the foremost EU maritime practitioners and compliance officers from owners, forwarders and shippers and the relevant trade associations.
